Quest for Truth in a Digital Age

BY LISA WENGER
@ VOL 10 ON JUN 06, 2014

Lisa Wenger's work is a quest for truth in a digital age. As viewers, we are constantly bombarded with images of perfection, which are often so beautiful that they have become grotesque. She chooses to emphasize and praise imperfections in her portraits rather than allow media to persuade us that only perfection is beautiful.

The PechaKucha Truth

BY DALE WEISS
@ VOL 15 ON AUG 20, 2016

Williamsburg organizer Dale Weiss asked his Facebook friends to send in some randon pictures, and Dale would see if he could make a story out of the images. Once he recieved the images, he realized the truth of PechaKucha was still out there, and needed exploring. (Apologies to Astrid on the national origin, but those ancient alien astronaut theorists do sloppy research).

Learning to Speak: Poetry as Pursuit of Truth

BY LAURIE ANN GUERRERO
@ VOL 20 ON DEC 01, 2015

"This poem is an ode to every hard-working artist who knows the joy of struggle from which their art comes."

In Learning to Speak: Poetry as Pursuit of Truth from PechaKucha Night San Antonio Vol. 20, poet laureate, Laurie Ann Guerrero looks back at her ancestors’ history of labor and struggle as art, a legacy of poets, musicians, and painters whose artistry was a way to map and ultimately transcend the world. Art, she says, is a pursuit of truth. It was her ancestor’s many generations of that pursuit that ultimately gave her the privilege and position of being asked to make art: the maker, not the object. Through poetry, Guerrero invites us to share in that space of openness, vulnerability and ultimately grace.
